interviewed a former ss guard who worked at the concentration camp in germany. so when i first heard that 20-year-old adam lanza had murdered 27 people, including 20 little children, i pretty much knew a few things about lanza. number one, that he was deeply angry. number two, that he was alienated from most other human beings. number three, that most likely he was deeply involved with the internet. all of those things have now been established. adam lanza could not live his life in a normal way. there has been speculation that he had aspergers syndrome, but that has not been established and that is unfair to knows who have that personality disorder, or autism, to diagnose him without conclusive proof. i give money to autism charity. very few people who have that condition are violent. they have enough to deal with. they don't need to be stigmatized. let's get back to lanza. what can be done about people like him? the answer is very little. we're a reactive society in america. our freedoms dictate that we can not warehouse people or strange. they must commit a crime or do something destructi
